Welcome to my gallery of quilts. I live in Brighton, Michigan. I have been quilting for 40 years, evolving from traditional patterns and hand quilting to more modern/art styles with mostly machine quilting.
I hope you enjoy these! Comments/questions about purchases and commissions are welcome. Katie

Yes, it’s a new year, 2021, and we are all thankful that there is a vaccine for COVID-19. This piece (21 X 30″) features my hand-dyed fabrics (and a few commercial prints) Some of the hand-dyed are also stenciled. I love the vibrant colors. Two detail photos below.
Upper left corner, my sister and family and two corgi angels. Upper right corner me and Tom, dog and 2 cats, and step-kids. Lower right corner mom with a crossword umbrella and pies in the window. Lower left corner, my brother and his family, 3 boys and their sports.
I used some hand-dyed green as a starting point for this one, adding commercial print fabrics with some darks and lights for contrast and interest. I had lots of green strips from another project that I used around the edges. Continuing my interest in the free-cut circle forms. Size is 28″ x 42″.
“Am I Blue” is a bluesy kind of song from 1929. I learned it from a friend in high school. This piece features some nice blues, plus black and white for contrast. Circular quilting in the center area. 25 X 38″ Detail below.
